SOURCE: Finalizing Discs
The only reason that you have to finalize a DVD-R disc is so that you can play it back in an external DVD. Once finalized, you can no longer add motion video to that particular disc. Discs that are not finalized can still be played back when inserted in the DVD-camcorder.

I have a liteon DVD recorder (1105) and I had the same problems......Exactly like yours.
So I opened the recorder and guess what??????? The light ray that burns the DVD was not moving.....I cleaned that thing that holds the light ray, so that it can move while burning and finalising.
The recorder is out of warranty any, so open it up clean it out.

The manual isn't too helpful either - "Recording error other than below," it says. There are a couple of possibilities. The Philips/Magnavox/Funai recorders automatically record in VR mode when you use +R discs (there are two possible recording modes - V Mode and VR Mode). Is it possible that you have switched disc types lately? If you are currently using -R discs, switch to +R and vice versa. The manual states that +/-RW discs take a while to initialize.
I couldn't find a full factory reset on that one, so you may have to unplug the unit for about 20 minutes to restore all the defaults.
Another possibility: Finalization requires some extra space on the disc. If you accidentally pressed the button that changes the recording format between SP, EP, LP, etc., you may not be able to fit the same amount of video on the disc that you were able to fit before. You can change the format by pressing the Disc Mode button on the remote - LP Mode will fit 3 hours worth of recordings onto a 2-hr disc and is considered a "medium quality" recording. Try changing the Disc Mode to LP and see if it will finalize the next disc that you record. The downside of this possibility is that the discs that you have already made that are giving you errors are not "fixable" - you will will have to re-record the shows to a new disc in LP mode.

It seems that it won't finalise because the disc is full. If you stop before the "Disk is Full" warning at two hours you should be able finalise, but, the disk still won't be recognised. DVD+R seems to work OK.
Personally with LG, Life's NOT Good.
